.import syntax error on colon character in table name

SQLite seems to handle the colon character in table names pretty well, as I can create, update and delete table with colon character in it without problem.

But it does not work in the .import command of the command line sqlite.  
**Example:** `.import file.csv track:someidthere`  
**Error:** `Error: near ":someidthere": syntax error`

I tried using quotes, single quotes and backslashes, nothing worked.

Is there some way to make it work or is it a bug in .import ?
